Satellite Beach, Fla.

The GetORT+ mobile app supports and operates on the latest Apple iOS and allows customers to use their iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad or iPad Mini to interface with their Satcom equipment.
Along with a Unity product kit, the GetORT+ app allows operators and aircraft maintenance personnel with Honeywell Satcom Terminal (MCS 3000, 6000, 4000, 7000, 7200) and AIS-2000 SAT TV to perform Owner Requirements Table (ORT) loading and channel list updates to the AIS-2000 Multi-Region Module. This release of the GetORT+ iPhone/iPad app supports upload of ORT files to the Honeywell MCS-3000, 6000, 4000, 7000, and 7200; supports upload of channel list and RIC file updates to AIS-2000 Multi-Region Modules; and supports upload of both preloaded ORT files and e-mailed files.

With the GetORT+ app, operators can now configure their Honeywell satcom terminal and AIS-2000 SAT TV using a single app on their iPhone or iPad,” said Ken Bantoft, Vice President of Engineering for Satcom Integration. “It offers a replacement for legacy PC-based applications that are not supported for installation or running on Windows 7 or 8 and makes use of existing cables for current Unity customers.”
